Editor Andre Leon Talley has gone on the record for the first time to talk about his departure from Vogue, and his relationship with new Russian title, ‘Numéro’

Andre Leon Talley's departure from Vogue has understandably made headlines for a few reasons, namely among them his decision to take over the latest Russian edition of the magazine Numéro.

Cue interviewing legend Oprah Winfrey and a set of perhaps slightly awkward questions on her upcoming Where Are They Now? episode, airing tomorrow worldwide. Winfrey asks the famous editor directly the reasons behind his decision, to which the answer is quite clear: Money.   

Plus, Leon Talley discusses why he felt it was time to leave the fashion bible, his relationship with Anna Wintour and the lack of diversity in fashion. "Life is not so simple. Do not think that I'm sitting here, looking luxurious and it's easy!"

A must-watch.
